Moldovan authorities said that the channels' licenses were revoked in order to prevent "disinformation" about Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
Moldova has suspended the broadcast licenses of six television channels over "disinformation," authorities said.
The decision to revoke the licenses was announced by Moldova's Commision for Exceptional Situations, which was established following Moscow's invasion of Ukraine.
It said that the suspension aims to "prevent the risk of disinformation or attempts to manipulate public opinion.".
The channels whose licenses were revoked were Primul, RTR Moldova, Accent TV, NTV Moldova, TV6 and Orhei TV.
Four of the six suspended channels regularly re-transmit programs from Russian channels that were banned by the European Council over "continuous and concerted disinformation and war propaganda actions.".
In Russia, journalists reporting on the conflict in Ukraine must call the Russia's war against Ukraine a "special military operation.". »
